Hi there,

On  31 May, this message from Josh Huber echoed through cyberspace:

The IO port region above might be your problem. What machine type is
this? Do you have any ISA slots in your machine? Form the i8259
interrupt controller I deduce it's not a PowerMac...

Have you looked at the driver whether it runs on IO ports or
memory-mapped? Since the two regions above probably represent different
views on the same register file, I'd go memory-mapped (i.e. using region
1 above), if possible.
